These Six Things

Do you ever have days where you sort of can't think clear enough to say, write a cohesive blog post? That's me today, so here I am writing this post in bullet points!


1. I'm sort of wiped out from this past week. Lately I've been helping out at my dad's office.  Plus side to this: I get to dress up every day and wear cute dresses. Minus side: I have to wake up at 7am {hence the I'm wiped out part! Such a baby, I know}
target dress// nordstrom bp bubble necklace// yellow j.crew skirt, steve madden bow flats
2. I ordered a few things for my bedroom: a bedskirt from West Elm and a light switch plate from Anthropologie.  Yay for room necessities! 


3. I'm obsessed with these flowers in the jars arrangement on the fireplace. What a simple thing to do on a mantle, but yet has such great impact!

4. I'm super excited about my gallery wall! I have the sweetest friend/artist doing a few pieces for me. Want a sneak peek? I thought so :) I'm dying over this and can't wait to get them all up on my wall!


5. Remember the post a few months ago where I told you I was trying to work out more? Well, I'm happy to report I've been doing a lot of that lately.  I'm lifting weights every other day and running most days, and it feels great! Hope is always close by:

6. If you want to learn more about what makes a great gray/greige color for your room, check out Kristy's series over at Hyphen Interiors! She had me and a few other bloggers list our favorite gray colors and is running a super informational series on them this week.


That concludes these six things! I hope you all enjoy your weekend! I'm upgrading my computer to a 15" Mac this weekend so I can have more memory space and a bigger screen to do e-designs and photoshop work.  Hooray! What are YOU doing this weekend?


Happy Friday!
Love,

  7. Bullet points are a great life savor when you don't want to write well built paragraphs. :) I wish I could say the same about me working out. IT's just been too hot!

  9. You forgot to say a plus side to working is you get to see me :) tehee Just kidding..No I'm not :)

    I really love the flowers in the jars, that reminds me I need to cover our house with more flowers.

    I also really love the watercolor, I really want to make my own.
